Vertical echoes observations by S-band radar
Keywords:Vertical echoes, S-band radar, radiation
Narrow vertical echoes have been observed by the S-band cyclone warning radar at Bombay ,which has peak power of 1000 kW. These vertical echoes were observed upto the height of 18 km on the RHI-scope and were not continuously straight line but broken in between at definite places. Initially on some occasions these were reported as very high thunderstorm echoes, but on subsequent observation theses echoes were observed stationary having segment. Later on these echoes were observed on clear sky days and also associated with anomalous propogation. This study points to the cause as being that of side lobe radiation.
